Why I decided to do this!
I have always watched paddleboarding and thought it looked like fun and siomething i would love to do. It took me a while, but i finally did it quite sometime ago now, and i got a board for my 40th birthday, Even that took me a while to get it out on the water, maybe becuase i was scared at the time of not being good at it. But one day i said stuff it, i'm going. IOt was Newyears day 2019 down at Brighton beach. fell off once, and then that was it.... i was hooked. I started taking it down to the lake near my home and fell in love with it. I loved the freedom and also the workout it gave me.... i went down on Monday for a training run for the event, and just found myself in a state of bliss and being happy just standing on the board paddling. it felt good and i felt like i was getting better and better at doing it.
I thought this event would be something good to challenge me personally but at the same time doing something good for others. I havent managed to raise much but every dollar counts.
Cannot wait for the event :)
I'm paddling to support Cancer Council Victoria
Every year, over 31,600 Victorians hear the words ‘you have cancer’. Their lives will change in an instant, as will those of the people around them.
I'm helping Cancer Council Victoria to change this by joining Australia's largest stand up paddle event.
By supporting me, you’ll be funding ground-breaking cancer research, prevention programs and support services that offer a helping hand to all people affected by cancer.
Any donation big or small I would be so grateful for.
